MAR 13 2010 Creative City - Jakarta has it!. JAKARTA HISTORY MUSEUM. JAKARTA. INDONESIA
A reported 40 thousand people flooded Jakarta's Fatahillah Square to watch, as D-Fuse illuminated Jakarta History Museum with a 15 minute 3D video mapping projection. This beat all estimates of an anticipated 1-2K audience, and created an incredible atmosphere, supported by marching bands and live music!
The projected animation transformed the museum’s colonial facade, tracing the history of the area from ancient swamp, colonial era, revolution, and to imagining it's future as Jakarta's new creative playground. This was the first ever use of the video mapping technique in the region, which involves projecting into the surface detail of a building, to create high impact video installations and 3D illusions. The use of narrative pushed the boundaries of a medium that has until now been used in abstract ways.
The video mapping was produced collaboratively between D-Fuse in the UK, and Indonesian multimedia artists Sakti Parantean and Adi Panuntun, photographer Feri Latief, and writer Taqarrabie. The projection was commissioned by the British Council to launch Jakarta Creative City!, an initiative supporting the revitalisation of Jakarta’s Old City creative district. D-Fuse would like to thank Winda Wastu and all the British Council, Paul Mumford, Toby *spark< /a>, Alvaro Posadas [Actop], and Liling Lu for all their help.
